Certified Yoga Teacher
Katie (she/her) is a recovering perfectionist and people pleaser, outgoing introvert, feeler of feels, creative weirdo, and multi-passionate nerd with a deep curiosity for life and how things work. While a sensitive, nature-loving home-body and a Cancer Sun at heart, her Aries Moon and Virgo Rising balance her out with a silly sense of humor, observant nature, spontaneousness, courageousness, and resiliency when faced with life's curveballs.
Katie's been practicing yoga since 2003, teaching yoga and meditation off and on since 2014, and became a Yoga Girl® certified yoga teacher in 2017. She is a trauma and domestic/childhood abuse survivor with experiences that have shaped not only her philosophy for living life, but also her encouraging style of teaching, too. Determined to not let her past experiences take more than they've already taken from her, she has continued to set her mind and heart toward healing and understanding her pain, so as to transmute her hard-earned lessons into empathetic insight that she can share with others.
When teaching, her classes are focused on accessibility, self-love, emotional peace, spiritual connection, and inner strength. Her passion lies in supporting those that have suffered through trauma, abuse, addiction, and other mental health struggles, and she is a strong advocate for human rights and social justice. Originally from the Chicago-area, and having lived and traveled around Europe, she has now planted her roots in Denver, Colorado with her goofy husband and their dog-baby Leo.
